How to purchase and deliver pay-per-view journal articles to
your users
Why use pay-per-view?
• Evidence from Geneseo, 12/1/06-1/1/08
▫ Paid $6,662 for 270 royalty payments of articles also
available pay-per-view
▫ Pay-per-view costs would have been $6,100
▫ On royalties alone, would have saved $562
• CCC royalties aren’t all…
▫ Pay-per-view savings increase if you avoid lenders that
▫ Range from free IDS Libraries to $25 lenders
• Summary:
▫ Why pay avg. $25 royalty + up to $25 in ILL fees?
▫ Pay-per-view gives immediate access for $23 on avg.
Analysis conducted by Cyril Oberlander, 4/21/08
What you need
• Credit card
• Email routing and access to your \ILLiad\PDF
folder, or just Odyssey Helper
• ILLiad lender record called “Vendor”
▫ Associate with each pay-per-view request
▫ Set as “Copyright Payer” to avoid pay-per-view
articles showing up in CCC order
• What is your scope?
▫ Only for faculty? Or for all users?
▫ How much are you willing to pay?
• When will you purchase articles?
▫ When CCC and/or lending charges exceed a certain
▫ When articles are embargoed from subscriptions?
▫ When there is no other means of access?
 Foreign or obscure titles
 Recent publications not yet published or held in print
▫ Rush requests?
Keep in mind
• Pay-per-view prices often cost less than copyright
clearance, but more than lender fees
• Article quality much better from vendors than through
ILL lenders
• Beware of articles in “Adobe Digital Editions” format
because they cannot be shared (used by BL Direct)
• Not all vendors are created equal
▫ Checkout is often clunky w/ no one-click ordering
▫ Not all articles available for purchase
▫ Obscure publishers may not have secure checkout or
automated delivery
• Follow all institutional guidelines for credit card records
Workflow example
Determine if purchasing the article is best option
Search Google for the article title to locate vendor
Buy the article from the vendor
Save the PDF to your \ILLiad\PDF folder or
convert to TIFF for Odyssey Helper
5. In the ILLiad request, use “Vendor” as your lender
6. Deliver the article via email routing, or route to In
DD Stacks Searching and use Odyssey Helper
